Dody, I am going to cross-post my reply to your email to the ZDP list.

This is what I have been working on, but I need a little bit more
time to set this up. Here is my suggestion (I realize this is not the
convenient for you): I want to see a tips section because I think that
that is very useful. I don't know the format yet. Please write your tips
and for now add them in any form you wish.
_Along the same lines, I would also like each chapter to end with
an end-of-chapter review._ So, if you are a writer, please consider
adding this to your chapter(s).
About my activities:
I am right now examining all my books that I think have a good layout.
I will combine the good aspects to, I hope, develop a design that will
work for Zbook. This means I will provide you with a list of components
of the book and the layout for a chapter. But this will take a few days.
I will post this outline to the ZDP list so that everyone has the
opportunity to provide feedback.
I am also planning to take parts of Zbook's Chapter 1 and arrange it
according to my recommended layout. That will be found at zope.org. Look
for the link to Style Guide.
I will keep sending posts to ZDP list to keep you up to date with my
activities. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact
